The square was shut when we were there with considerable renovation occurring. Most of the attractions were covered so we couldn't see much. I'm sure it will look amazing when they finish

At the time of visiting, there was considerable renovation occurring which regrettably obscured much of the attractions of this location. Once completed, it is almost assured that its ratings as an attraction will once again justifiably arise congruently with its stature.

This square is effectively shut currently as repairs to the buildings are being completed. I'm sure it will be fantastic again in the future but it has been this way since August 2023 and possibly earlier. An interesting way to spend public money

Surrounded by shops and restaurants this square is very busy and the crossing point to move around the city. Attractive with decorations leading up to Christmas

Albert Square is the main square located in the center of Manchester, one of the most important buildings in the center of England. In the square there are some important buildings like the gothic town hall, the Albert Memorial (the husband of Queen Victoria) and other statues. Really, it is very nice. Also, there are a lot of shops, bars and pubs in the surroundings and nowadays it is a commercial zone. When I visited this place, at the beginning of December, it was on works, so I could only walk in some parts of the square. I would like to return and see this place without works.

Most of the square itself is cordoned off as the town hall and cobbled square gets a well-deserved make-over. Due to be re-opened next summer though two sides doe have hospitality outlets unaffected.

So I came to Manchester for the day out with a family member (can't say which one it was as that is private!)

Albert Square is nice, lively and busy. Pavements are clean too, not much litter.

Albert Square in Manchester is in the city centre. It is a very short distance from St Peter's Square and adjacent to the Town Hall.

This is currently being restored so you cannot get to see this. Albert Square is also cordonned off but you can still make out some of the statues in the square.
